Today identity is more than anything, economic. The technology used to create, utilize and protect identities are increasingly ill matched to the economics and uses of identities. Identity theft is the misuse of private authenticating information to steal money. Protecting identity requires privacy. Proving identity requires exposing information. The Economics of Identity Theft , a professional book, discusses privacy as multi-dimensional, and then pulls forward the economics of privacy in the first few chapters This book also includes identity-based signatures, spyware and placing biometric security in an economically broken system, which results in a broken biometric system. The last chapters include systematic problems with practical individual strategies for preventing identity theft for any reader of any economic status.
